The Transition aims to help fresh graduates work through their fears while entering the corporate world. The book is a reflection of fourteen years of my corporate journey. Young professionals have very little time to contribute to self-grooming, which is why I wrote the book for them. It is more of a guide book that’ll help aspiring young professionals to ace their work lives,”

Our society needs role models, guides, and mentors at every sphere. You two have done a good job of filling that void and I do hope that many will come out and express themselves and provide substance in that void in our society and lives.

It’s a timely book covering two very important areas - how a university student should look at developing the core mindset and orientation for the professional life, utilizing time at university, and how one can build their foundation as he/she steps into the corporate world.

Bangladesh produces thousands of well-trained graduates, preparing them for the success of their employers, but not for their personal growth. Tajdin and Rafeed masterfully tackle this problem by referencing their own experiences at Bangladeshi universities and corporate workplaces.
